I got the suitcases out about a week ago, so today I started. It isn’t like I normal pack because I need nice clothes for going into the churches that the Anchorage Concert Chorus will be singing in.
Anyway I was washing clothes and putting the ones I was taking in the suitcase. I think I have got mine done now. I will just have to add a few last minute things. I will have to help my husband pack because you know how men are. He has these short green shorts that look so funny on him with his long, white legs hanging out. I have to make sure he doesn’t take those. He has a few other pieces of clothing that I have to make sure doesn’t sneak into his suitcase.
I got us checked into our flights on Easy Jet to London and Scotland. Printed off our boarding passes, hotel reservations, car rentals, and apartment reservation in Iceland. The count down is starting now.
I went last weekend down to Soldotna to go to my granddaughter’s 6th birthday at Soldotna Creek Park. There is a pavilion, playground, large area for play catch, picnic table. You can walk along the boardwalk by the river. Peacefully walk along the river until the salmon start running then it turns into combat fishing.
I am in need of a dress to where to the Vatican. I figure I should look nice because David will be in his concert chorus outfit. My friend, Judy, is taking me shopping today for a dress. We don’t have tons of places to go but I hope to find something that doesn’t make me look to big.
This reminds me of when my friend, June, took me shopping for clothes to where when I went to Buckingham Palace with my late husband who was being honored along with other veterans. It was part of the Not Forgotten which was started by an American long ago. Boy was I a sight with my big hat.
The thing about your children growing up is that they should celebrate Mother’s Day with their family. So the ole hippies went out with David’s brothers and their wives. We had a great time at Cattle Company. They even had to chase us out after two hours because the next reservation was there.
The Ole Hippies went on their first outing to Midnight Sun Brewery. They enjoyed the tour that is every Thursday at 6. They did not stay for supper but the food here is great and so is the beer. The ole hippies got married at the brewery after hours and they made a beer for them that they called True Love. They recommend when in Anchorage you must visit.
The chance to see a moose wading in the marsh, a muskrat swimming by or poking his head from the water or even the spawning of chinook, coho, or humpback salmon in Rabbit Creek: This is what you can see along the 1,550-foot wooden boardwalk that offers a panoramic view of Turnagain Arm, a waterway into the northwestern part of the Gulf of Alaska.Binoculars come in handy to search the cottonwoods near the bluff for an eagle’s nest. The marsh makes a good place for birds to come to nest in early spring.As you stroll over watery openings and sedges, look for newly hatched young.
I went to do an interview for an article here Sunday. I met some very nice men, Rory and Brett Marenco who happen to be twins and Josh Hegna who is the social drinking advocate. They have only been open for a barely over a year. It is located in one of the most popular places to ski around Anchorage, Alaska. Their story is a good tale and I am excited about getting started on the article.
This Saturday I will be going to David’s last concert with the Anchorage Concert Chorus before we go on our tour of Italy with them. I am really looking forward to the trip. I have been thinking of what to take. I know I will have to go buy a few things. David got his concert attire, so I just need mine. I can’t believe they will be singing High Mass at the Vatican.
